Nice emotional story

This is more of a realistic story that goes deep to normal human reactions and how they put it in the surface of their tongue.
This is not a kind of stories that keep me along the side of the main character but actually it makes me judging, who is right and who is wrong.

Brilliant

Best audiobook I have listened to yet. Brilliant story and very well narrated. Wanted the story to continue and can't wait to see this made in to a movie.

Entertaining

A good book and worth a read, but if you are expecting a thriller, don't expect to be on tenter-hooks or you will be disappointed. It's still an interesting story all the same.

Not impressed

I am sorry to admit that this is the first of the ten or so book that I've listened to on Audible, that I did not enjoy. The narration was very good, but after a few hours I gave up trying to force myself to enjoy the story.

Thoroughly enjoyable

What made the experience of listening to The Woodcutter the most enjoyable?

This is a story with a beginning a middle and an end. It kept my interest throughout and listening periods increased as I really got involved in the story.

Which character – as performed by Jonathan Keeble – was your favourite?

The main character

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me smile, chuckle and laugh out loud at times.

Any additional comments?

Super book with an excellent story line. Well worth a listen
